It is possible that the font you're using is not supported by Illustrator. I would suggest trying another Arabic font. Reference: "Arabic and Hebrew type" Legacy font support Fonts that have been traditionally used (for example, AXT fonts) can continue to be used in this release of the software. However, it is recommended that newer Open Type ...

I think this is more about writing than design. If the word in the header begins a thought or sentence and the body text after it completes that sentence, use a colon. If the header is just a stand-alone headline and the body text a new thought, you don't need a colon. When arriving at a convention, you should: Check in Pick up the welcome ...

If by "web safe" you mean common on all platforms, then No. It is not. You will have to use @font-face with a web and/or app license.

It's an interesting question whose answer goes beyond a yes or no. Actually there is no a convention or a majority position in respect of punctuation in headers. It is common practice in many typographical cultures skip it. I'm not sure what says English typographic tradition, however in this case you must appeal to your judgement and experience, and for a ...

I don't think there are any absolute rules here. The guiding principle is that you want to create a visual distinction between your title and your body copy, but you still want both to be harmonious. Within that guideline, I think that the title sans-serif with normal casing doesn't distinguish from a sans-serif body copy, unless you were to do something ...

If all else fails, explain visually. Design it their way, then provide one or more other better designs, and present them all, asking which one they prefer. Present them in place on pages, stationary, and elsewhere they would use the logo so they see how jarring it can be to have several typefaces in front of the user at once. You should do this seriously, ...

One thing I noticed is your use of punctuations. You may use them as you like in informal situations, but if we're talking about professional typography, you need to remember these rules: Any punctuation mark only appears one at a time. You have used ??, .. and .... in many places. In your question too, you're missing them in some places. If you want to ...

There is a Playboy bunny rabbit logo on the tail of one of your planes. If you're in Mubai you don't know, but it's a magazine of naked women. You probably do not want that on a professional site! Speaking of that, depending on what you want to show off, it might or might not be an issue that the graphics all on the front page came from somewhere else. ...

In typograph, an "em" unit is the maximum height of a set of characters. For latin text, that means the height from the accent on top of capital letters to the bottom of descending lowercase letters. E.g, it would be the total height of Ég. The "em" value is what you set when you define the font size -- if you set the font to be 24pt, then ...

Visually, it's cute. Nice work on that. Structurally, it's lacking. When you have to explain what to click on to navigate the site, the navigation is broken. Asking a user to read that they need to click on an image of a balloon to actually get to the content of your site (the portfolio) is not intuitive. I'd also rethink calling yourself 'crazy'. :)

Wow it's awesome! The font is readable so it's appropriate in my opinion. It is user friendly except not everybody knows at e.g. 'connect' that they have to click the satellite to open up the contact form. Also: I saw this when I opened up the site: Greetings

Well, here is one way to do it. Not that I'd probably recommend...but it does get the descender out of the way. But more seriously, one thing you might try is flushing the text right, tightening up the leading, and throwing a vertical rule next to the text. Depending on how the rest of the elements around this look, it might work... By the way, what is ...
